Detailed information/workflow about the image

For this representation was chosen the FAU USP building, an important construction by the architect Vilanova Artigas. He had a strong political engagement and in 1966, when it started being built, Brazil was facing tough times with military dictatorship. The heart of this project is the central atrium, a democratic space created to host cultural and political expressions. The ramp is another outstanding element of this project because it connects all the pavements.
The image shows an inner perspective looking at the ramp, where is possible to see some famous characters that had an important role for the Brazilian modernism walking and chatting: Lina Bo Bardi, Paulo Mendes da Rocha, Le Corbusier, Lucio Costa, Frank Lloyd Wright and Gregori Warchavchik. Meanwhile, in the background, the atrium is fostering different expressions as painting exhibition, sculptures and dance, showing different possibilities of uses. The programs used were Sketch Up, Lumion and photoshop.
